Church v state

In RESPONSE to Gus Logan (Letters, 28 May), the “secular states” of the 20th century in eastern Europe were communist states and communism’s evil is that it rejects freedom of choice in all walks of life, not that it is secular in any way. Communism rejects the idea that man has free will and the capacity for reason and practices this consistently in the only way possible: by continued use of brute force against those it rules.

As it is, religion is and should be an entirely private matter and there should be a complete separation between church and state, as there is in the United States.
